These Yin Yang Symbol Pendants feature a sterling silver back and edges, which means that it will not tarnish the way that some other pendants might. The middle of this pendant features a painted Yin Yang Symbol in the middle of a double Eight Leaf Lotus Blossom. The Yin Yang symbol originated in China, where the word Yin means "dark," and the word Yang means "bright." Together they represent two different "energies" that are everywhere throughout the universe. Note that neither energy is purely white nor purely black; both energies have a little of the opposite energy in them.
This theory of two energies is the basis for understanding many of the concepts in Chinese spiritual and natural philosophies. For instance, they represent Heaven and Earth, or Man and Woman, or God and Mankind. These two energies always exist in balance with one another, never able to exist without some of the opposite within itself. These Yin Yang pendants are a little bigger than some of our other pendants. They measure 1.25 Inches in diametre.
